After having all their gear stolen on the road, Nero Di Marte and Void of Sleep have launched a crowd funding campaign to buy new equipment and record a split release. Full details are available right here, and Nero Di Marte comments:
"As some of you may know, on Sunday March 23rd after a show in Rome, Nero di Marte and Void of Sleep were robbed of all their instruments and gear.
"In less than 30 minutes someone broke into our van and was able to take everything. It happened in broad daylight near a police station in Rome, despite there being a massive amount of police forces surveilling the area but, alas, no security cameras.
"Guitars, amps, pedalboards, drums, merchandise and personal belongings… a total amount of 25.000€ was stolen from both bands. They took everything.
"The sad reality of this situation is that without any instruments we cannot continue as a band. We can’t play, rehearse, tour, record a new album.
"It took us years to buy our gear, and to start from absolutely nothing, without any help, means paralyzing anything we could do for a long time or seriously put ourselves into debt beyond what we can afford.
"In the last few days we’ve received hundreds of messages and phone calls from friends and strangers; you’ve amazed us with your support, comprehension and indignation towards what happened.
"You helped us get back on our feet and empower us to immediately react to what happened, and for this we thank you.
"We want to get back to what we know how to do best, play music, and we cannot do it without your help. More...

This compilation was put together to raise money to benefit Ed Barnard of Doommantia.com. He suffered a heart attack and due to huge medical bills was forced to move back to his native Australia at the end of July. Basically homeless and rebuilding his life from scratch, he has no family to fall back on and cannot work due to severe health issues.
